Racism Exposed: Larry “Klansman” Klayman


 

By Jueseppi B.

BWZXrDOCIAACIKY

 

 

I usually do not waste valuable blog post space on racist redneck crackasses….such as this Larry The Klansman. I happen to catch his appearance on The Martin Bashir show and thought to myself, why would Martin and MSNBC waste airtime on this piece of feces. I went as far as to tweet that very question.

 

I was rewarded with the majority consensus that people like this Larry “The Klansman” Klayman needed to be exposed. I have a bad habit of assuming people know what I know and are aware of what I’m aware of when it comes to current events.

 

Freedom Watch’s Larry Klayman on Obama and the Quran

 

Published on Oct 14, 2013

Freedom Watch’s Larry Klayman makes some provocative comments to a group at the WWII Memorial. Don Lemon has more.

 

 

 

Obama Told To Drop The Quran

 

Published on Oct 13, 2013

Speaker At Rally In DC Tells Obama: ‘Put The Koran Down,’ ‘Get Up Off Your Knees’

Freedom Watch’s Larry Klayman speaks to a group gathered in protest at the World War II memorial in Washington.

 

Veterans and other demonstrators on Sunday protested at the World War II memorial and other national landmarks and monuments that have been closed by the ongoing federal government shutdown.

 

The rally, the “Million Vet March on the Memorials,” drew conservative politicians like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Sarah Palin, who both spoke at the event.

 

It also drew scrutiny because of some of the protesters who showed up — including one man brandishing a Confederate flag and another, Larry Klayman of the conservative advocacy group Freedom Watch, who accused President Barack Obama of being a Muslim.

 

“I call upon all of you to wage a second American nonviolent revolution, to use civil disobedience, and to demand that this president leave town, to get up, to put the Quran down, to get up off his knees, and to figuratively come out with his hands up,” Klayman told the crowd, according to CNN, which has the video.

 

The protest was part of a furor that has sparked up on the right over the closure of the landmarks. It began on the first day of the shutdown, when a group of World War II veterans were not allowed to enter the memorial. Republican members of Congress subsequently appeared at the memorial — many of them have accused Obama of using troops as political pawns.

 

The White House has fired back that Republicans are responsible for the closures, and the shutdown, because of their original fight to “defund Obamacare” through the continuing resolution.

 

 

 

One more time……

Freedom Watch’s Larry Klayman on Obama and the Quran.

 

 

Now….”We’re not racist when we call Obama a Muslim!”, shouts the TeaBagger. “His father was a Muslim from Kenya!

 

Then you realize that Barack Sr. was, in fact, an atheist, and Kenya is 83% Christian.

 

Then you realize that the TeaBagger thinks that because Kenya is in East Africa and there’s lots of black people there, it MUST be a Muslim country. So naturally a native Kenyan’s American-born son MUST be a Muslim as well.

Yep. No racism at all….

 

About Larry Klayman

 

larry-klayman

 

 

Larry Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, is known for his strong public interest advocacy in furtherance of ethics in government and individual freedoms and liberties. During his tenure at Judicial Watch, he obtained a court ruling that Bill Clinton committed a crime, the first lawyer ever to have done so against an American president. Larry became so famous for fighting corruption in the government and the legal profession that the NBC hit drama series “West Wing” created a character after him: Harry Klaypool of Freedom Watch. His character was played by actor John Diehl.

 

In 2004, Larry ran for the U.S. Senate as a Republican in Florida’s primary. After the race ended, he founded Freedom Watch.

 

Larry graduated from Duke University with honors in political science and French literature. Later, he received a law degree from Emory University. During the administration of President Ronald Reagan, Larry was a Justice Department prosecutor and was on the trial team that succeeded in breaking up the telephone monopoly of AT&T, thereby creating competition in the telecommunications industry.

 

Between Duke and Emory, Larry worked for U.S. Senator Richard Schweiker (R-Pa.) during the Watergate era. He has also studied abroad and was a stagiaire for the Commission of the European Union in its Competition Directorate in Brussels, Belgium. During law school, Larry also worked for the U.S. International Trade Commission in Washington, D.C.

 

Larry speaks four languages—English, French, Italian, and Spanish—and is an international lawyer, among his many areas of legal expertise and practice.

 

The author of two books, Fatal Neglect and Whores: Why and How I Came to Fight the Establishment, Larry has a third book in the works dealing with the breakdown of our political and legal systems. His current book, Whores,is on now sale at WND.com, Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, Borders.com, and all major stores and booksellers.

 

Larry is a frequent commentator on television and radio, as well as a weekly columnist, on Friday, for WND.com.

 

Larry has been credited as being the inspiration for the Tea Party movement. (See “Larry Klayman – The One Man TEA Party,” by Dr. Richard Swier.)

 

 

Lawsuits

In April 2011, Klayman filed a lawsuit against Facebook, accusing the social media website of “negligence” for not responding quickly enough to calls to take down an anti-Israel “Third Intifada” page and demanding $1 billion in damages. Facebook representatives responded that the suit was “without merit.” In December 2012, the district court dismissed the complaint on 47 U.S.C. 230 grounds.

 

Also in 2011, Klayman represented Joseph Farah in his defamation lawsuit against Esquire magazine. A D.C. judge tossed the case and Klayman appealed the ruling.  In July 2011, Klayman represented Bradlee Dean in his unsuccessful defamation lawsuit against Rachel Maddow; Dean was eventually ordered to pay defendants’ legal fees that totalled nearly $25,000. The case is also under appeal.

 

In 2012, Klayman filed on behalf of a Florida resident an unsuccessful challenge to Barack Obama‘s placement on the primary ballot and claimed that the latter is not a natural-born citizen.

 

Klayman is representing families of members of Navy SEAL Team 6, the elite special forces who killed Osama bin Laden, who died after their helicopter was shot down by the Taliban three months later. Klayman contends the Obama administration put the Navy SEALs at risk by disclosing their identity. 

 

Challenge to President Obama

On October 13, 2013, during the partial US Government shutdown, Klayman urged a conservative rally in Washington, D.C. to begin a second American Revolution and demanded that President Obama “put the Quran down … [and] figuratively come out with his hands up”.

 

 

From POLITICO:

Larry Klayman defends Obama-Islam link

By MACKENZIE WEINGER

Freedom Watch’s Larry Klayman on Thursday defended his controversial speech at last weekend’s rally at the World War II Memorial, saying the response to his comments suggesting President Barack Obama “bows down to Allah” and the Koran underscores “why the truth needed to be said.”

 

At Sunday’s rally, Klayman, a conservative legal activist, called on the crowd to “wage a second American nonviolent revolution” and “demand that this president leave town.” He also said the United States is “ruled by a president who bows down to Allah.”

 

“I call upon all of you to wage a second American nonviolent revolution, to use civil disobedience, and to demand that this president leave town, to get up, to put the Koran down, to get up off his knees, and to figuratively come out with his hands up,” Klayman said at the “Million Vet March on the Memorials.”

 

On Thursday, Freedom Watch said in a press release that Klayman “metaphorically stated that our current president bows down to Allah.”

 

“He also challenged Obama, who has repeatedly shown his pro-Muslim bias over Judeo-Christian values, to get up off his knees, put the Qur’an down and to figuratively come out of the White House with his hands up and resign,” the conservative political advocacy group stated. “While these references were intended to be metaphoric and not literal, they do ring true nevertheless.”

 

And Klayman, described in the group’s release as “undaunted and in fact amused by the reaction by the far left and its enablers in the liberal media,” said the response to his comments shows the “left” and those in the “establishment” don’t “want to hear or admit the truth.”

 

“The strong reaction to my statements underscore why the truth needed to be said,” Klayman said in a statement. “These naysayers do not have the courage of our Founding Fathers, who risked their lives and fortunes for freedom. But there is a groundswell growing to take strong non-violent action to free We the People from the shackles of the political establishment, who have driven the country into the ground.”

 
Thank you POLITICO

 

I sometimes find the best way to expose a moron as he/she rolls around in the muck of racism is to allow them to talk. Please Proceed Mr. Larry “The Klansman” Klayman.

NEW Surveillance Video Shows Gunmen Inside Kenya Mall On Day Of Deadly Attack

 

New video has emerged from the Kenyan mall massacre showing four gunmen prowling through a lower-level storeroom as they search for potential targets.

 

The footage, captured by the mall’s CCTV system shows terrorists armed with automatic weapons mid-way through the assault while many of the victims remained trapped inside the building.

 

A military spokesman today confirmed the names of the four fighters implicated in the attack that turned into a four-day-long siege.

 

At least 67 people were killed in the attack on Nairobi‘s Westgate Mall, which the al-Qaida-linked Somali militant group al-Shabab has claimed responsibility for.

2 Killers Escape Fla. Prison With Bogus Documents

 

By MIKE SCHNEIDER and BRENDAN FARRINGTON & Associated Press

As authorities hunt for two killers who were mistakenly freed by bogus court documents, prison officials and prosecutors across Florida scrambled to make sure no other inmates had been let out early.

The review comes three weeks after convicted murderer Joseph Jenkins walked out of prison, despite a life sentence. A week after he was let go, Charles Walker, who was also serving life, also was released.

It’s not clear exactly who worked up the fake documents ordering their release. Authorities said the paperwork in both cases was filed in the last couple of months and included forged signatures from the same prosecutor’s office and Chief Circuit Judge Belvin Perry. The documents also called for 15-year sentences.

Perry said Thursday there were several red flags that should have attracted the attention of the court clerk’s office or the Corrections Department. Namely, it’s rare for a judge to order a sentence reduction, and even more uncommon for the request to come from prosecutors.

“One of the things we have never taken a close look at is the verification of a particular document to make sure it’s the real McCoy,” he said. “I knew that that was always a possibility, but you never want that possibility occurring in the way that it did.”

Prisoners have had varying success trying to use bogus documents to escape. Many forgeries are discovered early, but there have been cases where inmates walk free.

In Florida, Jenkins was let out Sept. 27, and Walker was freed Oct. 8.

Jenkins, 34, was found guilty of first-degree murder in the 1998 killing and botched robbery of Roscoe Pugh, an Orlando man.

State Attorney Jeffrey Ashton said he learned Jenkins had been released when Pugh’s family contacted his office. They reviewed the paperwork and found that it was a fake, then notified law enforcement.

Later, they discovered Walker’s release documents were also fake. The paperwork also forged prosecutors’ signatures, Ashton said.

“It is now clear that the use of forged court documents to obtain release from prison is an ongoing threat which all law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, court clerks and prison officials must address and stop,” Ashton said.

Upon hearing of Jenkins’ release, his former attorney, Bob Wesley, said he was sure “it wasn’t a cunning master plan.”

Wesley, now the public defender for metro Orlando, recalled his client’s crime and said Jenkins broke into a home of someone he knew and was “not smart enough to pull his ski mask down.”

Walker was convicted of second-degree murder in a 1999 slaying in Orange County. He told investigators that 23-year-old Cedric Slater was bullying him and he fired three shots intending to scare him.

Walker’s then-defense attorney, Robert LeBlanc, now a judge in Orlando, refused to comment.

In a statement, Department of Corrections Secretary Michael Crews said his agency was reviewing records to make sure no other inmates had been released in a similar fashion.

Ashton said another man serving a life sentence for attempting to kill a law enforcement officer was also scheduled to be released using forged documents, but an investigator discovered the scheme before any release.

In 2010, a Wisconsin killer forged documents that shortened his prison sentence and he walked free, only to be captured a week later. In 2012, a prisoner in Pennsylvania was let out with bogus court documents, and the mistake was only discovered months later.

U.S. Navy SEAL Team Raids Somalia Town


 

By Jueseppi B.

From The New York Times:

 

U.S. Says Navy SEAL Team Stages Raid on Somali Militants

 

By  and 

 

NAIROBI, Kenya — A Navy SEAL team targeted a senior leader of the Shabab militant group in a raid on his seaside villa in the Somali town of Baraawe on Saturday, American officials said, in response to a deadly attack on a Nairobi shopping mall for which the group had claimed responsibility.

 

The SEAL team stealthily approached the beachfront house by sea before exchanging gunfire with militants in a predawn firefight that was the most significant raid by American troops on Somali soil since commandos killed Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan, a Qaeda mastermind, near the same town four years ago.

The unidentified Shabab leader is believed to have been killed in the firefight, but the SEAL team was forced to withdraw before that could be confirmed, a senior American security official said. Such operations by American forces are rare because they carry a high risk, and indicate that the target was considered a high priority. Baraawe, a small port town south of Mogadishu, the Somali capital, is known as a gathering place for the Shabab’s foreign fighters.

“The Baraawe raid was planned a week and a half ago,” said another security official, speaking on the condition of anonymity about a classified operation. “It was prompted by the Westgate attack,” he added, referring to the mall in Nairobi that was overrun by militants two weeks ago, leaving more than 60 dead.

Witnesses in the area described a firefight lasting over an hour, with helicopters called in for air support. A senior Somali government official who spoke on the condition of anonymity confirmed the raid, saying, “The attack was carried out by the American forces and the Somali government was pre-informed about the attack.”

A spokesman for the Shabab, which is based in Somalia, said that one of its fighters had been killed in an exchange of gunfire but that the group had beaten back the assault. American officials initially reported that they had seized the Shabab leader, but later backed off that account. The first American security official said there were no reports of American casualties in the operation.

The deadly assault on the Westgate shopping mall was a stark reminder of the power and reach of the Islamist group, which has had a series of military setbacks in recent years and was widely viewed as weakened.

The F.B.I. sent dozens of agents to Nairobi after the shopping mall siege to help Kenyan authorities with the investigation. United States officials fear that the Shabab could attempt a similar attack on American soil, perhaps employing several of the group’s Somali-American recruits.

Another United States official said it was still unclear whether any Americans were involved in the Westgate mall episode, though there were growing indications that fewer attackers took part in the siege than the 10 to 15 militants the government had previously announced.

A spokesman for the Kenyan military said Saturday that it had identified four of the attackers from surveillance footage. Local news media reported their names as Abu Baara al-Sudani, Omar Nabhan, Khattab al-Kene and a man known only as Umayr. “I can confirm that those are the names of the terrorists,” said Maj. Emmanuel Chirchir, the spokesman.

The footage, broadcast on Kenyan television on Friday night, showed four of the attackers moving about the mall with cool nonchalance, no hint in their demeanor that they had stormed a shopping center and massacred dozens of people, much less that they feared an imminent counterassault from Kenyan security services.

One loitered in the grocery checkout aisle, talking on his cellphone. Another slouched in a storage room like a worker on break.

At least one of the four men, Mr. Nabhan, is Kenyan, and believed to be related to Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan, the Qaeda mastermind killed four years ago near Baraawe.

The elder Mr. Nabhan was a suspect in the bombing of an Israeli hotel on the Kenyan coast in 2002 and the attacks on the American Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998.

He was one of the most wanted Islamic militants in Africa when American commandos killed him in September 2009 in an audacious daytime attack. Four military helicopters shot at two trucks rumbling through the desert, killing six foreign fighters, including Mr. Nabhan, and three Somali members of the Shabab.

Mr. Nabhan was of Yemeni descent but was born in Mombasa, on Kenya’s coast. Kenyan news media reported that the younger Mr. Nabhan also came from Mombasa, and was among the Kenyans who traveled to Somalia to fight with the Shabab.

Matt Bryden, the former head of the United Nations Monitoring Group on Somalia and Eritrea, said the tactics used in the Westgate attack were similar to those used by the Shabab in a number of operations in Somalia this year. But he also said that local help was needed to pull off an attack on that scale, and that several of the men identified as taking part in the attack were connected to group’s Kenyan affiliate, known as Al Hijra.

“We should certainly expect Al Hijra and Al Shabab to try again,” Mr. Bryden said. “And we should expect them to have the capacity to do so.”

The raid on Saturday appeared to have been intended to blunt those capabilities. A witness in Baraawe said the house was known as a place where senior foreign commanders stayed, though he could not say whether they were there at the time of the attack.

The witness said 12 well-trained Shabab fighters scheduled for a mission abroad were staying there at the time of the assault.

There was some confusion as to exactly what happened before sunrise on Saturday. Witnesses described the SEAL team using silencers in the initial attack, but a loud firefight afterward. Before confirmation that an American SEAL team was behind the attack, a Shabab spokesman said British and Turkish forces were involved, which both countries immediately denied.

“The attackers were not able to enter the house,” the spokesman, Sheik Abdiaziz Abu Musab, said in a telephone interview. “Our fighters were fighting very hard.”

 

Nicholas Kulish reported from Nairobi, and Eric Schmitt from San Francisco. Reporting was contributed by Josh Kron from Mombasa, Kenya; Sebnem Arsu from Istanbul; Michael S. Schmidt from Washington; and Mohammed Ibrahim from Mogadishu, Somalia.

In his weekly address, President Obama says the economy is making progress five years after the worst recession since the Great Depression, but to avoid another crisis, Congress must meet two deadlines in the coming weeks: pass a budget by the end of the month to keep the government open, and raise the debt ceiling so America can pay its bills. Congress should vote to do these now, so that we can keep creating new jobs and expanding opportunity for the middle class.

VIDEO MENSAJE DE LA CASA BLANCA: El Congreso debe actuar ahora mismo para aprobar un presupuesto y elevar el tope de la deuda

September 21, 2013 | 4:32

 

En su mensaje semanal, la Directora del Consejo de Política Doméstica Cecilia Muñoz discutió los progresos realizados en los últimos cinco años desde la crisis financiera. A pesar de que aún hay mucho trabajo por hacer, el Presidente continúa trabajando incansablemente para mantener a nuestra economía marchando como debe y para asegurar un mejor negocio para la clase media. Pero en las próximas semanas, el Congreso enfrenta dos plazos límites críticos, el aprobar un presupuesto y el elevar el tope de la deuda. Es esencial que el Congreso actúe para que no se ponga en riesgo a nuestra economía, y para que podamos continuar enfocando nuestros esfuerzos en la creación de trabajos y en la reconstrucción de las escalas de oportunidades para los latinos que continúan trabajando arduamente para llegar a ser parte de la clase media.

Open Enrollment Starts October 1st. Learn How To Enroll.

 

Published on Sep 19, 2013

On October 1st, Americans will be able to enroll themselves and their families in a health care plan on HealthCare.gov. Annie talks with Bryan Sivak, Chief Technology Officer at the Department of Health and Human Services, about the new open-source marketplace for finding plans that fit your needs and budget.

 

Have you used HealthCare.gov? What are your impressions? Let us know in the comments.

 

 

 

Get educated about your health care options today.

 

Put down the gaming controller. Turn off reality TV for an hour.

 

Get informed & educated on ObamaCARES. October 1st, 2013, in just 10 days, open enrollment for ObamaCARES begins.

 

THE REAL Reason WHY CongrASS Hates ObamaCARES…..

 

“The Affordable Care Act says that starting in 2014, members of Congress and their staffs can no longer get their health insurance through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, as they have in the past. Instead, these federal employees will have to get insurance through the exchanges set up by the Affordable Care Act.”

 

There you have it.

 

The U.S. CongrASS does NOT want to be like you and me.

 

Please don’t believe the negative hype by elected racist politicians WHO ALREADY HAVE GOVERNMENT FUNDED HEALTH CARE COVERAGE.

 

THESE ELECTED GOVERNMENT POLITICIANS WANT TO REPEAL your GOVERNMENT HEALTH CARE, BUT KEEP THEIR HEALTH CARE COVERAGE.

 

WAKE UP AMERICAN VOTERS.

 

Let Me type that for you again……“The Affordable Care Act says that starting in 2014, members of Congress and their staffs can no longer get their health insurance through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, as they have in the past. Instead, these federal employees will have to get insurance through the exchanges set up by the Affordable Care Act.”

 

In other words…..

 

No ‘Special Subsidy’ for Congress.

 

Now do you understand WHY elected politicians hate ObamaCARES?

 

Read the Full Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) Bill.

 

Read the Law

The Affordable Care Act was passed by Congress and then signed into law by the President on March 23, 2010.
On June 28, 2012 the Supreme Court rendered a final decision to uphold the health care law.

Rachel Maddow – GOP implodes over War on Obamacare

 

Published on Sep 20, 2013

Sept 19, 2013
Ryan Grim, Washington bureau chief for the Huffington Post, talks with Rachel Maddow about the level of vitriol in the infighting among Republicans and conservatives over whether the stunt votes in the House to defund Obamacare do them more political harm than good.

 

 

 

Lies & Misinformation from The GOP Reich Wing Nutz….

 

Generation Opportunity, a Koch Foundation-funded anti-Obamacare group, plans a $750,000 campaign of “Opt Out” ads aimed at convincing college students to forego the Affordable Care Act’s exchanges. (Included: “brand ambassadors” who will distribute Opt Out beer koozies at college football games.) But if their first two ads are any indication, the group’s strategy appears to be to freak the living daylights out of everybody, student or not, within viewing distance of a television.

 

In the first ad, “The Exam: Creepy Uncle Sam”—yes, creepy is the organization’s word—a young woman goes to her OB/GYN for an exam only to have her doctor replaced by a terrifying oversized Uncle Sam, who emerges between the woman’s legs over the sound of discordant circus music. “Don’t let government play doctor,” warns the text:

 

Opt Out – The Exam – Creepy Uncle Sam

Empower yourself by opting out of Obamacare.
Visit http://optout.org for more information

Good news: you are not required to purchase health insurance through an Obamacare exchange! There are cheaper, better options for young people.

 

 

 

Another video features a man told to pull down his pants and lay on an operating table, at which point Creepy Uncle Sam springs up from behind him and slaps on a surgical glove. You can take it from there:

These ads make no mention of exchanges, fines, or anything else; in fact, they provide no rebuttal to the Affordable Care Act at all, substantive or otherwise. They just have a dude in a scary mask about to violate a woman.

 

If conservative groups feel they have a valid financial argument against Obamacare, then they should make it. But if “straight-to-video slasher flick meets tea party iconography” is the best vehicle for your message, it says a lot about the message itself.
